Hi everyone :)

I'm Helen, I'm 32 and from England. I am currently not a Buddhist but have a growing interest in it and want to know more. I currently consider myself to be agnostic whilst I am from a Christian background originally (although I was brought up secular).

I'm not sure what else to write here, except that I hope to learn a lot from the forum.

Welcome, Helen. :smile:
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Expedient Means Chapter

There are beings with little dust in their eyes who are falling away because they do not hear the Dhamma. There will be those who will understand the Dhamma.
-Ayacana Sutta

Hi Helen! Welcome aboard. Using the search function, you can find a lot of good info on Buddhism here. Also, if you have a question, just ask. There are a number of very knowledgeable people here on different Buddhist traditions. Depending on where you live, maybe there is a Buddhist community in your neck of the woods that you may want to eventually make a connection with.
